      In normal mode, if I type yy I yank one line, if I type 2y I am still in
      operator-pending mode (waiting for entry of an object or motion), and if I
      type 2yy (with at least one line below the cursor line) I yank two lines
      (the one at the cursor and the one below). I'm not sure what 1y does. Done
      it (2yy) lots of times.
